A spin-off of my original Latkes, these sweet potato bad girls really hit the spot. I found that the sweet potatoes added a little extra “something” to the mix and they stayed a little more together/dry than their regular potato brethren.
1 large yellow onion
3/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 small tbsp of ground flaxseed
3 diced chives
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Olive or coconut oil for cooking
Heat oil in frying pan to medium-high.
Using the smaller measurement on a hand grater, grate peeled yams and onion into a bowl. Drain out any excess liquid. As these are not regular potatoes you may not have much in the way of liquid.
Mix in flax-seed, cumin & chilli powder.
Form into miniature patties no more than 3/4 of a cm in thickness.
Fry in hot oil until both sides are browned. Removed from heat and place on top of paper towel to remove excess oils.
Top with a sprinkling of chives and a dollop of sour cream/vegan sour cream to liven things up a bit.
